What is Conflict Sensitivity?

May 17, 2017

 

UNOPS contribution to the International Project Management Day 2016 included a roundtable discussion about Conflict Sensitivity. Participants included representatives from key UNOPS partners in this area: Catriona Gourlay (Executive Director – PeaceNexus), Frederik Rosén (Senior Researcher – Danish Institute for International Studies), and Sarah Pickwick (Senior Conflict Adviser – World Vision).

UNOPS has been embarked for the last 2 years on a pilot to develop guidance and mainstream conflict sensitivity processes across the organization. This video was recorded by the participants of the roundtable to explain the importance of Conflict Sensitivity for the international development arena and to help mainstream the concept throughout.
